schumer. let me bring in quickly david shuster who is on the ground in washington, d.c. david, where are you perched? >> governor granholm, we're at 7th and madison. i'm personally thrilled to hear that the marine corps band has been the start of our coverage as opposed to beyonce, kelly clarkson and james taylor. we're going to hear from them as well but you're right, the marine corps band goes back to 1790s, back to the time of george washington. part of the official sort of vibe that we're going to hear this morning. we're at 7th and madison, about seven blocks from the reviewing stand, from the area where president obama and the dignitaries are -- 1500 dignitaries will be seated around president obama. what they've done is because of security, they've pushed the median -- a lot of folks are further back. they divide the mall into sections. it requires a certain level of security to get up close. a little less security to be further back where we are. based on the crowds that we're seeing and we should keep in mind it is about 40, 42 degrees, not a bad day here in washington. we'r
from the president. chuck schumer is the latest essay, to say, as you know, if it comes to another budget that will be stressful, republicans may not like it, but they will have to deal with it. i will have more on the attitude in the approach of the president. i didn't see anything shocking or the president. he is kind of echoing what he already has said. maybe slightly more directed to the point. maybe something that you would normally see in an address like this. maybe more inclined for the state of the union address. >> what is interesting though is that a lot of the lines could have been in his campaign speeches. the whole thing about, well, there are a select few that are making it at the top. the rest are getting the scraps. we have to build them up. i heard that in city after city in ohio and florida and colorado and iowa. neil: were you surprised to hear it now. >> are you going to be up late? >> are you going to have a tv dinner over there? neil: it was enough to say that i won this election and i'm going to go with the spending and this will happen. >> he did, he said th
cooperation. and here is the president now with charles schumer, the senior senator of new york. >> mr. schumer i believe is in charge of the congressional committee that puts the inauguration on. he'll be speaking before the president takes the oath this morning. of course, there will be no lack of conversation on this trip to the capitol. of course you'll have the vice president there. he can always be counted on to -- if there's a gap in the conversation, he'll fill it. >> it will be something to see whether between the vice president and senator schumer the president can get a word in edgewise on this short trip up. it's about 1.6 miles. i'm reminded that abraham lincoln once said about this trip, he said i have always been told that i'm going to hell, but i didn't realize it was two miles up the road with a dome on top of it. i'm sure all presidents feel that way from time to time. the president's armored limousine now moving past the entrance to the west wing and will soon be on its way out of the white house grounds and up pennsylvania avenue. senator schumer who is riding with
, and honey. the wind will be from new york state from chuck schumer the represents the united states senate. next is a call from nelson. caller: i have a question with the ceremonies being whipped on the 21st. i notice reagan's inauguration in 1985 that it was moved to the 21st. if there is a change of presidents and falls on a sunday, are the ceremonies moved to the 21st there as well? thank you. host: yesterday recovered the official swearing in of the president and vice president. those ceremonies held separately. those were to affirm the constitutional requirements. today is really the public ceremony, and they follow the constitution. today all about the big public events. today the first public event. the next call is from robin. she is watching us in tennessee. caller: i am so glad i voted for obama. he really shines when he makes his speech. you can tell he is sincere in trying to do what the majority of the people want. and i am really proud of him and proud to be an american because of him. and my son was in the choir. i would have liked to see more of them. they are a great colle
was a democratic leader -- there's the president. >> there's the president with chuck schumer, the chair of the inaugural committee. also no overcoat. >> i have to tell you, chuck schumer, if he's not the next senate leader, i don't know who is. his power in relation to the haguele nomination was awesome. he was the green light for that nomination. >> a big endorsement on "meet the press" after a 90-minute interview with chuck hagel. and chuck schumer has a very special manner of knowing how to cut to the chase and asked the direct question, and it's like, you and i were talking earlier about middle of the road. you get somebody who is close friends with both and you make them decide, where are you? he's kind of that way. >> chuck schumer as the chair of the inaugural committee has a high-profile role in all of today's ceremonies. the same way dianne feinstein did in 2009. but chuck schumer, you talk about his public profile, he's essentially the policy director for the democrats in the house as they have held the majority for the entirety of president obama's first term. this week is go
committee. every four years they gather. chuck schumer of new york. the president doesn't often have off the record social time with members of congress. but they're having coffee this morning, as they're preparing to come down to the capitol. you don't have that coffee between the outgoing president and the new one coming in. >> you do not. and senator mccain was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. john kerry was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. we know that the romneys will not be here today. as we watch, we're looking at the presidential car. and i've read they call it the beast because it is such a fortified machine, the president rides in. and here, he is ready to emerge for his second inauguration. >> and you talk about the day going so quickly again. talking to pierre thomas. this is a day of high anxiety for law enforcement officials. >> the trip to the capitol, many law enforcement officials call it the longest ride or so. we have law enforcement officials at command centers, are manning the surveillance cameras, talking to agents in th

followed by lamar alexander, senator from tennessee, and chuck schumer from new york who may be uncomfortable. he's a little shy around tv cameras. >> no, he doesn't like tv cameras at all. >> don't get between chuck and the camera. >> that's right. >> the speaker behind him, eric cantor behind senator alexander and schumer. the congressional leadership, as we pointed out earlier today, met at the white house for coffee. they came back a little early and the president rode up in a motorcade. >> tyler, we saw joe biden flash that smile when he walked out. the president is smiling in his new official portrait but not -- well, he just did there. chuckled. but he was a little somber as he was walking out. >> yeah. >> some people looked at that portrait and said he's feeling cocky. >> i spent my week memorizing all kinds of inaugural trivia. the president, of course, latest in a long line of presidents, chief executives, to travel from the white house by car. the first to go by car was warren g. harding. how about that? >> and what an auspicious sign that was for his presidency. >

at what is going on. >> the honorable charles schumer. [ cheering ] >> mr. president, mr. vice president, members of congress, all who are present, and to all who are watching, welcome to the capital and to this celebration of our great democracy. this is the 57th inauguration of an american president. no matter how many times one witnesses this event, its simplicity, its majesty and, most of all, it is meaning. it is sacred and cautious and trusting a power from we the people to our chosen leader never fails to make one's heart beat faster as it will today with the inauguration of president barack h obama.

's attention. >> ever since key new york democratic senator chuck schumer softened his stance on former nebraska senator chuck hagel, president obama's nominee for defense secretary, hagel has been able to slowly grow a little more support in the senate ahead of his confirmation hearing and now though, some senators are raising questions about deputy national security advisor john brennan's chances of becoming cia director since at least one democratic senator has an issue with mr. brennan's role in the government, targeting americans that we thought were involved in terrorism, such as anwar al-awlaki, jamie. >> jamie: thank you so much for the look there. thank you. and as peter mentioned the federal court of appeals did unanimously ruled that president obama violated the constitution when he bypassed with a recess appointments that involved three vacancies to the national labor relations board. a tactic both parties used to keep presidents appointing people they don't like and the president claims he acted properly because the senate was away for the holidays, but the federal court di
, brought to you as a service by your local television provider. >> senator schumer, senator of new york, what are the hardest part of your job right now? >> the hardest part is try to make sure that everybody -- there'll be a huge crowd. that everybody gets to their places, their seats, they're standing in places. there was a big problem four years ago, not the fault of the committee, but there were so many people. we are trying to deal with these huge numbers of people. we have done a couple of things. we are using an iphone app -- whoever gets a ticket, there will be a gps-related application telling them how to get to their seats. last time, people waited on line for hours, and when it got to the gate, there were told, you're at the wrong date. we are building cell phone towers on the mall surface. people can call in if they are lost or they got separated from their party. we also have hundreds of volunteers who will be scattered, not only on the mall, but a mile or two from it, telling people, let me see your ticket, you go this way or that way. >> social media -- the committee has
the tail rather than just get ready for the big fight. senator chuck schumer has a theory to go to al's point that he tells his colleagues which is that because president obama never had to climb the greasey poll pole of politics, didn't have to make his way up in the political world, he's had a kind of special path in life he doesn't know this benefit of relationship he didn't have to learn the hard way that relationips are what got you from the tiny city council race up into maybe the slightly higher race and that's one of the reasons. i think another thing in talking to white house aides about why the president doesn't believe in schmoozing, a, he believes -- he doesn't want to do it. it's not his cup of tea. but his view-- particularly on john boehner-- is that boehner cannot deliver a deal. he can do all the schmoozing he wants but when john boehner, the house speaker, goes back to his caucus they are driven and ruled by imperatives that are impervious to schmoozing and this that's basically their nstituents at home and therefore if boehner can't help him make a deal he has to fi
. it also promises to put some teeth into enforcement. chuck schumer of morning and john mccain of arizona were two of the senators. here is what they said today. >> other bipartisan groups of senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals, but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> what's going on now is unacceptable. in real what's been created is a de facto amnesty. we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes, and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so great. >> here is what the plan includes. the creation of what the sthors call a tough but fair path to stip. strengthening border security with new tools. establishing an effective employment vir fication system to prevent employers from hiring illegal workers. most will be given a provisional status. they
are joining the democrats chuck schumer and bennett to introduce a set of principles they want to guide immigration legislation as it moves through congress. here's what the four basics of this proposal look like. first create a tough but fair path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already here. contingent on meeting border security metrics. changes the system in a way that helps our economy. set up a verification program and overhaul the system for letting future workers into the united states. the goal is to have legislation drafted by the end of march. >>> the president's going to travel to vegas tomorrow and that is where he will speak publicly on his plans to move immigration reform and make that an immediate priority. of course, he's also moving on gun violence at the same time. so he's going to have to work at those paths simultaneously. we can attribute the new republican willingness to go along with republican reform to the republicans losing seven out of ten hispanic votes in november. mccain and company have some selling to do. they need to convince their colleagues their
chuck schumer likes the camera, that's for sure. so he wasn't about to be left out. so here he is during beyonce's "star spangled banner" with a great big grin. >> he looks very, very happy. most of those men look happy when beyonce walked out. >> i'm video bombing you. >> you're video bombing me on your last day? did you do anything, you know, scandalous? >> when? >> just now? did you do anything fun in that photo bomb? >> no. you can look at tape. we just don't want you to stand up because there's nothing from the waist down. >> we'll be back. en you wake up in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath

. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. sessions: i was pleased to hear a few days ago senator schumer said that we'd have a budget in the senate. it's been now 1,370 about, give or take a few days, since we've had a budget in the senate, even though plain statutory law requires the senate to have a budget. and now senator murray has followed up yesterday with a quote saying that the senate will -- today, i believe, said we'll again return to regular order and move a budget resolution through the committee and to the senate floor. so the budget committee has not been meeting, has not been doing its duty. as the ranking republican on the budget committee, i've been aghast, really, at the process and have talked about it now for over a thousand days. and so this will be a good step. my colleagues would like to suggest somehow that, well, they decided to do this out of the goodness of their heart and this is the right thing, and on their own they've just decided. but i think the american people have had a bellyful of this. the united states house has repeatedly passed budgets. the senate
without pay. i'm not sure this is a threat the american people would mind so much. senator chuck schumer has said the senate is working on a budget but the republicans won't like it because it includes tax increases. they will talk about a short term solution. it is a change from before. beyond that, it remains to be seen what common ground, if any we can find between the two sides. house speaker boehner wants to balance the budge net ten years but doing that would take massive spending cuts that democrats won't go for. we're back after the break. coming on to me all the time now. (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, it's "the stephanie miller show." ♪ i'm walkin' on sunshine ♪ ♪ i'm walkin' on sunshine ♪ ♪ and it's time to fe
on this debt ceiling vote and chuck schumer said we are going to present a budget. that's not such a big deal except where they never present a budget. they don't want to come up with any of the hard choices. every time the democrats do something as obama did on medicare, it's death panels. you have to somehow join hands in order to be able to do this. all the cuts that obama made to medicare, he got blasted for by republicans. >> right. >> good point. >> he got blasted for them by romney. not all the republicans. >> he did decide to use that money to start an entitlement program. it would have been nice to move that money to the side. we will see what happens. you are right. everyone will have to join hands and make the tough choices. the bigger the deal the better the chance to get involved. >> "time" magazine's joe kline and willie geist is live. he's on the parade route. willie geist what do you have coming up next? >> mika, you guys are inside a warm bar. i'm outside in the cold. i'm doing something wrong here clearly. we will update you on what will happen out here tod
. senator schumer is leading a group that senator flake is part of. i think we can get this done. >> jeff, can the president drag the unions along to get them supporting real immigration reform? >> remember, in the last four years, we haven't had a comprehensive plan put forward because the unions don't want guest worker plan or temporary -- >> why not? they just don't want more workers in the workplace? >> i believe on the high-tech side, there's some in my party that say let's not have any new. >> thank god we didn't have that in world war ii where einstein ended up in austria. >> my own view is if they're willing to come here or stay here after they've received a ph.d. from our universities, roll out the red carpet and don't try to count that against other visas that have been offered. >> think about the best and the brightest in this country. think about the high-tech companies in this country that have revolutionized the way we live, the way we work, whether you're talking about yahoo! or google or intel, go tech company after tech company after tech company. >> there are companies i
, these senators, these include some of the biggest players on the democratic side. senator schumer, senator durbin, on the republican side, senator mccain, marco rubio, coming out with a plain before the president unveils his. tomorrow the president is going to jet to las vegas to unveil his immigration plan. these senators putting out a marker. here are the three big points of this plan. and this is going to be the biggest debate on immigration in six years since back in 2007 when president bush's plan was deeted. he defeated. here are the three big paths. it will provide a path to legal citizenship for the people in the country illegally. that's dependent on increasing border security before that happened and some other procedural safeguards. and three, there's going to be a little faster path to citizenship for seasonal agricultural workers and for young people who are brought to the country illegally. so that's the nod to the dream act that's so popular on the left. >> andrea, what chances do a major plan like this have of getting through congress? >> i think better than ever. and the real sad
